Abstract

is a well-known cause of foodborne disease usually of benign course. Here, we present the case of a 15-year-old boy who developed reversible fulminant liver failure associated with rhabdomyolysis after pasta consumption. Suspecting as the aetiological agent may prevent unnecessary liver transplantation.
